Revenge robbery admitted

Two women have admitted a robbery conspiracy after they sent a gang member to an ex’s address to steal items.

Stacey Irene Sumner, 30, had been in a relationship with the victim, and had broken up with him.

She sent a text to Nicola Christy Geddes, 35, requesting that one of the people at the address get “taken out” of the picture, but the other resident was not to be hurt too much.

Between the two women they organised a car for the alleged burglar, and told him the address.

They also spoke about deleting their text messages to avoid being caught.

It is alleged that on April 19 the gang member committed a robbery at the victim’s address.

The women pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiring to commit a robbery.

Christchurch District Court Judge Raoul Neave remanded them on bail for sentencing on February 21. He asked for a pre-sentence report, and referred the case for a possible restorative justice meeting with the victims.
